About me

I'm a multidisciplinary designer focused on creating meaningful products and experiences both physical and digital, collaborating with teams from research and strategy to ideation and development.

Over the years I've been working on different projects across many industries, designing solutions like cars, digital products, smart devices, user experiences, concept art, research, strategies, and more.

In the latest years, I've started to dive deep into the AR/VR/MR world, helping tech companies create future visions of how immersive technologies will transform the way people live and interact with digital experiences.

My greatest passions are sketching and creating concept art by exploring 2D, 3D, and VR mediums. I simply love to design vehicles, futuristic-concept cars, and spaceships of all kinds.

That's the reason why I also developed a great curiosity about space, enjoying reading and watching documentaries about black holes, Mars, and anything related to space exploration.
